End of Season Junior Event

Main Image
The end of season tennis event on Sunday September 3rd was a resounding success despite the weather. We raised £854 at the event which will go towards the court development project which we are trying to complete in time for next season. The tournament itself saw some very competitive play – even with the tiny tots and younger mini reds who enjoyed some competitive fun games despite the weather. In only the second year of running the mini tennis tournament, there were a total of 32 competitors in the three events including 6 in the mini green event which we ran for the first time. There were some long hard rallies in the matches and there were a number of games which might have produced a different result on a different day! Well done to all those who took part. The winners were as follows: Mini Red - Winner – Eva Jenkins; Runner up – Henry Heslip Mini Orange - Winner – Christian Smith; Runner up – Will Thompstone Mini Orange - Winner – Finn O’Shea; Runner up – Christian Smith Under 13 Girls - Winner – Ashley Baglin; Runner up – Isabella Teare Under 13 Boys - Winner – Paddy Wright; Runner up - Roman Lanz-Bergin Under 18 Girls - Winner – Bella Elms; Runner up – Julie Durville Under 18 Boys - Winner – Seb Fishwick; Runner up – Miles Pooler Fastest Serve Competition The fastest serve competition could become an annual fixture in future years as there was some intense competition – eventually won by the rain! Ringo triumphed in the men’s event with Max Ridings close behind. We thought we were going to have an ‘Ingle’ double until Amelia came to spoil the party with a late winning score. Thanks to all the adults who came to support this event – and we hope that the sun will shine on us next year to see if anyone can beat Ringo’s current record. Men – Winner – Richard Ingle 143kph; Runner up – Max Ridings 141kph Ladies – Winner – Amelia Potter – 104kph; Runner up – Sarah Ingle – 102kph Under 18 Boys – Winner - Max Ridings – 141kph; Runner up - Max Green – 122kph Under 18 Girls - Winner – Julie Durville – 63kph Under 13 Boys - Winner – Toby Jackson – 105kph; Runner up – Ivan Marr – 81 kph Under 13 Girls - Winner – Ashley Baglin – 83kph      See full story...
